We have lived in Romania for 16 years now. We have 6 kids. The top photo of our family is the day we met the twins, just before their 4th birthday. We were granted custody of them on their 5th birthday.

Train Ride Home

So, here are our six kids. Zachary is 9, Spencer turns 8 on June 5, Drew turns 5 on July 15, Gheorghe and Gina turn 4 on April 22, and Nate turns 2 on June 12.

Baron drove up and picked up the twins. He brought one of the collge students to help him occupy the kids on the long drive back. We had another good visit with them. It is so hard to tell how difficult it will really be. We won't know how they are going to react until after they move here and realize they aren't going back to Casa Alba. I took them back by train. They did great and I was really pleased. The only thing that is a little scary is how friendly they are with total strangers. We will have to work on this.
I think it is better taking them by train because the trip is chopped up. We have a short train ride to Timisoara then we switch trains and have a 3 1/2 hour ride to Oradea then take a taxi to Marghita. There are faster trains to Oradea but they are very early in the morning. I took the innercity train back so my ride was only 2 1/2 hours. Some trains stop in every village some stop in only bigger villages and some stop in only the big cities. Our next visit will be for a whole week. They will be here for their birthday and Easter.

How exciting! The picture of the kids is so cute. Zach has grown sooooo tall and all the others are about the same height (especially 3 of them). I still want to ride a train. If they're not in your home by May 19, maybe I could ride the train with you to see them:)Praying for you!
Love ya,
MOM Howie
